Airport Services

Tourist Information Center

Stop at the TIC located on the arrival lobby (first floor) for information. They are staffed by multilingual travel experts who can answer questions and provide free maps and brochures. A stop at the TIC saves travel-planning time in advance. Office hours are from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, every day all year-round.

Money Exchange

Japanese public transport, stores and restaurants are legally forbidden to accept foreign currencies. You do need small amounts of yen currency for immediate needs. If you have foreign bank notes other than U.S. dollars, it is wise to convert some of them in to yen while at the airport. Traveler’s Checks can be cashed quickly at banks, but few stores or restaurants accept them. Unused yen (bank notes only; no coins) can be reconverted into foreign currencies at the airport with no limitation, provided the exchange center has sufficient funds for re-conversion. For handling currency exchange, there are nine banks at the airport, with one or more open from 6 am to 11 pm.

Japan Rail Pass Order Exchange

You can obtain your Japan Rail Pass by exchanging your Exchange Order at the JR Information Counter in the International Arrivals Lobby (1st floor, open daily, 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.), the TiS-Travel Service Center (open daily, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.), or the Green Window (Midori-no-Madoguchi) Reservations Ticket Office (open daily, 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.) at JR Kansai Airport Station. The date of validation of your Pass can be any day within 3 months of the issuing date of your Exchange Order. You can use the Pass for the JR train trip
